Bordeaux is the hub of the famed French wine growing region, but it’s not all vineyards. It’s pedestrianised boulevards, restored neoclassical architecture, high-tech public transport system and reclaimed former industrial wet docks at Bassin à Flots make Bordeaux among France’s most exciting and vibrant cities. Half the city (18 sq km) is Unesco-listed, making it the largest urban World Heritage site; while in contrast, world-class architects have designed a bevy of striking new buildings. Bordeaux has barista-run coffee shops, super-food food trucks, an exceptional dining scene and more fine wine than you could ever possibly drink. Sounds perfect to us!
